First-year honors students may take advantage of priority registration – the opportunity to sign up for classes earlier than other students. Additionally, honors students have the option of living in Honors housing. Honors housing is staffed by two Community Advisors (who are Honors students) and features special programming, such as guest speakers, field trips, and barbecues.
Honors students may join the student-run Honors Council, which meets periodically to develop Honors programming and address concerns of Honors students. Honors students may also apply for the Distinguished Scholars Certificate.
